chocolate-covered almonds

Chocolate-covered almonds are the perfect treat for someone who loves a little crunch with their chocolate. These little sweets are available in dark, extra dark, and milk chocolate flavors. And come in as little as a half-pound bag to two-pound bags. So you can have as few or as many handfuls as you’d like.

For as long as it has been around, chocolate has been almost everyone’s go-to when they want something sweet. And it can be used for pretty much everything, for baking, party favors, snacking, fundraising, and so much more. At Lazar’s, we take our chocolates very seriously. All of our chocolates are handcrafted with care, and because we want everyone to enjoy our chocolates, we also carry nut and kosher-free products. 

If you’re looking for something more than chocolate-covered almonds, we also have chocolate almond bark, chocolate almond patties, chocolate butter crunch, and more. But if you’re looking for something without chocolate, perhaps some nuts without chocolate, we carry trays of assorted fruit and nuts, mixed nuts on their own, and just almonds. There is something for everyone at Lazars. We even have some of your favorite candy.

Why Was Chocolate Only for the Rich?

Chocolate is a treat that many of us have come to enjoy. We bake with it, give it away as a gift or party favor or eat it the way it is. Everything seems better when chocolate is involved. But did you know that not everyone could enjoy it? A long time ago, this sweet treat was meant for the rich.

The origins of chocolate are traced back to 450 BC and were served as a drink. Those who drank it believed that the chocolate drink would give them strength. As time went on, we learned how to turn chocolate from a liquid into the solid we know and love. 

So why was it that at one point, only the rich could enjoy this tasty treat? 

As we know, chocolate has two primary ingredients cacao and sugar. And in the early 15th century, the Aztecs used cocoa beans as currency. They would even use it to pay taxes or offerings to gods. 

In 1528, chocolate found its way to Spain, where it became popular with the rich. By the 1600s, chocolate was introduced to Europe. 

Chocolate continued to be enjoyed by Europe’s wealthy and upper classes as they consumed it for the added health benefits, adding to its popularity. And because it became so popular, European Colonists created plantations in regions where cacao was grown. When diseases struck, affecting the labourers, slaves were imported to the Americas to work on farms. 

Chocolate came to America in 1641, then in 1682, Boston opened the first chocolate house. Because of this, American’s of all classes were able to enjoy it. 

American soldiers were given chocolate as a ration during The Revolutionary War, and it was often given to them as payment. 

Supply and demand problems were one of the contributing factors to the cost of chocolate. Creating chocolate was another issue as it was made by hand before the invention of the chocolate press in 1828. 

After the invention of the chocolate press, producing chocolate became less expensive, and soon everyone, regardless of class, could enjoy it. 

Lazar’s is a fourth-generation family of chocolatiers, and we take great pride in all of our chocolate products. Our chocolates make for great gifts, and party treats, party favors and much more. 

Each of our products is handcrafted with care and can be delivered almost anywhere.

Why is Chocolate Associated with Easter?

It has become a tradition for most, hiding and finding chocolate eggs every Easter Sunday morning. But why do we associate chocolate with Easter? How and where did this tradition begin?

Before we answer those questions, we must start with Easter’s importance and what it signifies for Christians everywhere. Easter celebrates the rebirth of Jesus Christ. It was believed that Jesus was crucified on Good Friday and returned the following Sunday, Easter Sunday.

So, how did eggs become an Easter tradition? Christians believe that eggs are a symbol of rebirth and fertility and that the eggs represent the tomb in which they buried Jesus in.

In ancient times, during Holy Week, the week leading up to Easter, eating eggs was not allowed. So, instead of eating them, they would hide them for kids to find and decorate.

As for chocolate eggs and their origins, well, nobody knows why or how they became a tradition, but their origins date back to 1875 when Cadbury changed how they made chocolate by producing hollow chocolate eggs. And in 1905, Cadbury released milk chocolate eggs that we know and love.

How about that Easter Bunny? What role does he play in all of this? Well, baby bunnies are considered a symbol of new life, which correlates with the resurrection of Jesus.

Therefore, the tradition of the Easter Bunny was born. Now kids look forward to finding Easter eggs hidden around their house by this mythical creature.

At Lazar’s, we have plenty of Easter treats to go around. From traditional chocolate bunnies and eggs to chocolate-covered marshmallow peeps. But if you’re looking for something different, why not try chocolate-covered pretzels or an assorted box of chocolates.

And if you’re not sure what to give away, we also carry an Easter gift set that has an assortment of chocolates and jelly beans.

Speaking of jelly beans, they are also an Easter tradition because of their egg-shaped appearance, so if chocolates aren’t your thing, we have plenty of those. From jelly belly 49 flavors to licorice and everything in between.

Not into jelly beans, that’s okay. We have lots of other candies to satisfy anyone’s sweet tooth.
